About the event

Home to 250,000 inhabitants, Ghent is the third largest city of Belgium.

Over 70,000 students make Ghent the largest and playful student city. Moreover, its 14 world-renowned research institutes allow Ghent to play R&D champions league & act as a magnet for knowledge & talent.

This encouraged the rise of a booming tech ecosystem, which led to the creation of Tele-Atlas/TomTom (Belgium’s first unicorn), Netlog (early Facebook challenger) and high-growth companies such as Showpad, Ablynx, Teamleader and hundreds more.

Moreover, in Atomico’s recent state-of-European-tech report, Ghent was ranked as one of the fastest growing tech hubs. It is also considered as Belgium’s scale-up epicenter by Venturebeat.

By connecting high-potential startups & scale-ups with ambitious young talent, the first edition of the Ghent Startup Fair pushes the startup & scale-up community of this thriving tech city to a next level.
